Help me pick out a motherboard that fuflills my needs:

I need the best bang for your buck motherboard that is capable of good performance on a Quadcore 6700.

The following is required:
1 (firewire) connection or more for the case (The back end isn't important, I want one for the front of my case)
6 or more USB 2.0 connections (Case and back of motherboard combined)
1 E-sata connection
4 or more Sata
2 IDE driver connectsion (though one IDE with jumper works for 2 DVD drives)
Decent over clocking potential (I will not overclock initially, and will not go to the extreme) 3.2 maybe?
Decent built in audio

Currently looking at the following
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130081
Reviews say it has an onboard firewire, even though newegg.com doesn't show it. What do you guys think? $150 range.

Computer Components:
Q6700 (Intel Quad Core)
Memory (undecided) - DDR2

  1. This is a nice mobo but doesn't have eSATA but can always add a card. It's the P35 chipset that is newer than the 650

  2. agreed^^^
    however PK5-E is $150 and it has WIFI + better cooling
    But again P5K is a very good board too
  3. Well the Wifi one is 139.99 I might get it.

    Does anyone know if these have connectors so I can connect an E-sata to my cases built in port. That is important to me. Thanks.

    BTW: Dow Wifi mean it has a built in wireless capabilities to connect to my network or share a printer through my computer?
